it was amazing
Read in May, 2009

I've only read very few of Le Guin's books, but I find her books really hard to get into. I struggled through the first book in the series although at the end I found it very satisfying, and the second book was interesting for the conflicts between two cultures but I found the actual story quite boring. The third book however, was absolutely wonderful. This feels like the complete story in the series whereas the first felt like a prequel of sorts and the second book more of a commentary.

If you are like me who prefers stories that involve wandering around but prefer not to read a grand scale save the world plot, give it a try. The story is very personal, and most of the changes take place inside the main character only, but it's by no means any less intriguing.
